02:20 pm: 30 Days of Truth: Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Affirm that it was viable and healthy (not terribly likely, because of my age, but possible), that it was safe for me to carry a child to term (fairly likely, as I'm healthy despite my age and size), and that Peter agreed to go forward (almost certain, as he adores babies).

Panic.

Celebrate.

Panic some more.

Prepare.

Hold off on telling anyone for some months (sorry, even my LJ friends), as I did when I was pregnant with Teddy.

Continue to panic.

Probably get used to giving myself shots again (gestational diabetes being extremely likely to make a return appearance).

Eventually, one hopes, give birth to a healthy sibling for Teddy.

Perhaps experience breastfeeding and menopause simultaneously. Whoopee.

Having another kid is an intermittent fantasy for me, though I admit I'd prefer to do so without the whole pregnancy thing (birth is fine, but I don't know how to get there without pregnancy, alas). Realistically, it's far too late for me. We got our one, extremely lucky shot with Teddy. We tried again a few years ago, and I probably had a miscarriage or two. It would be a minor miracle for me to get pregnant.

So it goes.
